This nearby trout stream is a favorite destination because it embodies solitude—something I longed for while living in the city. But now that I’m surrounded by forests and streams (like this one) and miles of fields gated only by farm gates, I hardly know what to do with myself. Is there any end to our longings? Speaking of that (longings), it’s Friday and time to go hunting for antiques! What fun awaits us around the next corner!

This trail receives four paws from both of my dogs. It has a remote feeling, lots of good dogs sniffs, and is beautiful. It is on private property so you have to check with officials at Camp Mikell in Stephens County before striking out on your own.
